Gilroy Garlic Festival - Part 1
Since I was too busy getting my drink on and he has a better camera than me, my photos from the Gilroy Garlic Festival (in NorCal) are brought to you by the awesome timberwolf4u. Thanks Timber!

Anyways so I went with timberwolf4u, astolpho, jell_0, westly_roanoke, crocuta, quilzas and smokepaw to the Gilroy Garlic Festival! You may have seen this event on the Food Network with their garlic ice cream and whatnot. I ended up going all three days :D

Why? Because garlic is serious business.

Queen of all I survey! As long as all I survey is garlic in theme

Garlic pesto penne, garlic fries, and garlic stuffed mushrooms, all washed down with a tall heaping cup-o-sangria. Yum! The chunks on the garlic fries were so intense anything else seemed pale in comparison.

astolpho, jell_0 and I all sample the famous garlic ice cream. Jenna looks so cute in this one XD

Nobody can stop the Grimace! Actually it really wasn't bad...really good actually. I kept going back for more. Its like vanilla ice cream with a slight garlic flavor to it.. its just surprising.

Garlic peanutbutter cup. The peanutbutter had chunks of garlic in it apparently..it was an odd texture and on a hot day, chocolate is /not/ a good choice.

I love it when the horses' expressions reflect those of their riders

It's a shame garlic makes me ill, because this looks like a lot of fun!

Man I did not realise that was the face I was making. I was only going for grouchy.

Oh man I miss those fries... XD The Santa Cruz Boardwalk sells them. As for the ice cream- I tried it once and immediately forked it over to my friend. It tastes too bizarre for me, like a creamy version of raw garlic or something. :|

Too cute. Sorry we couldn't hook up the next day. Had a blast.

I just have one question, who on God's green earth thought it would be a good idea to have something as delicious as the Garlic Festival in the middle of California's Asshole of Hell?
I was drinking 3 and four Lemon Freezy's just to survive!

I guess Garlic is Gliroy's only attraction so they are holding onto it for dear life, but Christ. I am making my new tradition attendance to the Monterey Bay Jazz festival. F-U Gilroy, I'll take fog and rain any day!

This and that one themepark they have down the street from this are the only plus sides of living in Gilroy it seems. Oddly its enough for me as long as there's air conditioning XD

Thanks for making it, I'm really sorry about the planning fiasco on saturday. I felt really terrible. When I'm at the mercy of other's schedules its really hard..kinda like a convention. Was nice seeing you when I did though!

Great photos! Looks like fun. Alas, I am allergic to garlic (nooooooo!) but I still eat a little bit anyway from time to time, 'cause I like it.
